The farm had been inland and his memories were of fields and moorland.
Transferring onto the Canvas
The canvas got a coat of gesso before starting. I then put down a ‘thin’ coat of oil paint over everything. Particularly a dark violet colour in the foreground where the heather was going. Then it was just a question of working my way down the painting, starting with the sky, and adding the detail.
I hope that Paul can sit back, contemplate it and remember his Gran.
